What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Don't Cut $93 Million from Memphis Schools, Herenton Says":

"I know huh, Willie. If they aren't going to give you money, then maybe it's not the job you wanted after all!?" — MisterT80

About "Tourist or Terrorist," by Bianca Phillips, which supposedly identified how we can spot potential terrorists:

"This campaign against photography is a misguided effort to lull people into a false sense of security that authorities are actually doing something to protect them. In fact, harassing photographers does NOTHING to protect against potential terrorists. Jesse James did not need a camera to case the banks he was going to rob." — NYC Photorights

About "Tolling for Eight Bells," Frank Murtaugh's sports column on the death of the Kentucky Derby thoroughbred:

"It is the spirit of the horse that exacerbates the injuries — Thoroughbreds have such competitive fire that they will run through the greatest pain to win." — skipaway2000

Comment of the Week:

About "Scott Ritter Says Controversial Things About Clinton, Bush, Fox News, ...":

"That was all truth, a big fat huge bite of it, every word, unvarnished and as real as you'll ever see anywhere (unclassified), and sadly it's not what most people want to hear or believe because of political biases, left or right, so I guess in that respect it's 'controversial.' None of it was controversial imho. Great questions. Greater answers." — Bill W.
